Consensus: Funny, self-referential, and irreverent to a fault, The Wolf of Wall Street finds Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio at their most infectiously dynamic.

David Thomson
The New Republic

DiCaprio has hinted before that comedy might be his natural calling -- think of Catch Me If You Can -- but his energy here is not just fun, it's discovery.

The Wolf of Wall Street is a magnificent black comedy: fast, funny, and remarkably filthy.

Fan The Fire

A terrific watch, and bound to be one of the funniest films of the year, but perhaps a tad indulgent and lacking the emotional resonance that could've escalated it to truly unmissable status.

Wesley Morris
Grantland

For three hours the movie operates at a ridiculous comedic pitch. You never forget you're at the circus. You never lose site of the lawlessness, the reckless pleasure, the sheer lunacy and lack of regulation.

Man, does this movie have a savage bite.

Graham Young
Birmingham Mail

A forgiving nature and lots of stamina is needed for this no-holds-barred hedonistic ride into the Roman orgy-style excesses of the 1990s' financial world

Richard Brody
New Yorker

Scorsese unleashes a furious, yet exquisitely controlled, kinetic energy, complete with a plunging and soaring camera, mercurial and conspicuous special effects, counterfactual scenes, subjective fantasies, and swirling choreography on a grand scale.

I couldn't buy it, and couldn't wait for the hollow spectacle to end.

I genuinely fear an entire generation of young would-be financial gurus seeing this film as their Scarface, reveling in the wish-fulfillment excess while dismissing any and all social commentary or moral condemnation.

The film started off good showing Belfort build his empire from the bottom, thought that was interesting. Then once he's successful (30 minutes in the… More

A speculative four stars, in a way, as I thnk - like Casino - this film will be better on repeated viewing, despite being lesser work from the director of Taxi… More

I realise this is supposed to be a satire, but I felt that there were times when the scales tipped more to the side of glorification.

Best infomercial for debauchery yet.
Kase Vollebregt
An outrageous exercise in greed and excess, The Wolf of Wall Street finds the DiCaprio and Scorsese duo near their best.
